She participated in summer courses at Minnesota Dance Theater, Marat Daukayev School of Ballet, the Rock School, the School of Philadelphia Ballet, and the School of American Ballet. At 16, Lucia moved to Philadelphia and began training at the School of Philadelphia Ballet. After two years in the school, Lucia joined Philadelphia Ballet II for the 2018/2019 Season, and was promoted straight to the Corps de Ballet for the 2019/2020 Season. She was promoted to Demi Soloist for the 2020/2021 Season.
